What is the plotline of the anime?

In a continent dominated by chaos, Lords possess the power of a sacred seal that can calm chaos and protect the people. The rulers, however, throw aside their beliefs of purifying chaos and begin to fight for each other’s sacred seals to win each other’s domination. Siluca, a simple wizard who despises the lord for abandoning their faith, and a wandering knight named Theo, who travels by train one day to liberate his homeland, make an eternal vow to work together to reform this war-dominated continent.

Will there be a second season of the anime?

The first season of the series began airing on January 6, 2018 and made the season finale after 24 episodes on June 23, 2018. After about three years, A-1 Pictures or any related company has not renewed the anime for a second season. This period is quite normal considering the anime industry, but there are some criteria to consider. Considering the manga / light novel series, we will speculate to see if the series will have a new season.

The light novel, written by Ryo Mizuno and illustrated by Miyu, is the main source material for the anime. The light novel series published by Fujimi Shobo between 2013 and 2018 is no longer continuing. The light novel series is also published by Viz Media in English and consists of 10 volumes in total. And the bad news is that these ten volumes are fully adapted to the anime. Considering the lack of source material and the light novel no longer continuing, there is no possibility of seeing a new anime adaptation season.

If the taste of the series is on your palate, we recommend light novel. Because when adapting to anime, ten volumes were fitted into one season, and depth could not be reflected. Many chapters have been skipped, and if you want this excitement to continue, we recommend you to read the light novel from the first volume.
